14 Insane “Game Of Thrones” Theories That’ll Blow Your Fucking Mind

You know nothing. [SO MANY SPOILERS.]

Posted on

We asked the BuzzFeed Community for the most insane Game of Thrones theories. Here are the best ones.

Note: Not all submissions were sent in by Community users.

1. Jaime will kill Cersei because she becomes the Mad Queen.

HBO

Cersei's prophecy confirmed that "the valonqar" (meaning "little sibling" in Valyrian) would kill her — so she could die by either Tyrion's or Jaime's hand. But GET THIS: In the hot tub in Season 3, Jaime told Brienne that he killed Aerys after Aerys planned to use the wildfire beneath the kingdom to wipe out King's Landing. SOUND FAMILIAR?! And remember how pissed off Jaime looked during Cersei's crowning at the end of Season 6?! I'M SHAKING.

2. Daenerys's beloved Missandei is an "angel of death" for the Faceless Men. WHAT?!

HBO

She speaks 19 languages, and why would she need to unless she had to speak to people all over the world?! Her emotions are also difficult to read, just like the Faceless Men, and she knows quite a bit of inside info for someone who was ~just a slave~ for so long before joining Dany's circle. Not to mention her saying "Valar Morghulis" — which, yes, could be a common phrase — but is specifically the one given to Arya by Jaqen. There's SO MUCH MORE to this theory, so jump down the rabbit hole.

3. Meera Reed and Jon Snow are twins.

HBO

The odds of Jon's mother, Lyanna, dying in childbirth would've been higher if she were having twins — and Reed and Snow are the same age. But most of all, Howland Reed, Meera's "father," owed Lyanna a debt after Lyanna saved him from a group of violent squires years prior — so it would make sense that if need be, Howland would've taken Meera in after Lyanna's death.

4. Euron Greyjoy and Cersei are totally gonna hook up this season.

HBO / Anna Kopsky

When Euron was introduced to us, he revealed his plan to get with Daenerys and claim the Iron Throne. But Yara and Theon got to Dany first, automatically making Dany and Euron enemies. Dany and Cersei are also enemies, so naturally, Euron's next move could be to ally with the woman already on the throne — and in Game of Thrones, alliances are often solidified by marriage.

5. Tyrion Lannister is actually a Targaryen...

HBO

In the books, Tyrion is described as having hair "so blonde as to be almost white" and two different-colored eyes — descriptions that also match those of the Targaryen bloodline. Also, when Tyrion kills his father, Tywin says, "You... you are no... no son of mine." You'd think Tywin's hate for Tyrion carries to his last moments, but maybe it's George R. R. Martin being sly. Since Tyrion has joined forces with Dany in the show, do you think he could learn a big truth about his past?

6. ...and if he isn't, he's gonna marry Daenerys.

HBO

Um, HELLO! At the end of Season 6, Tyrion consoles Daenerys after she ends things with Daario, saying, "He wasn't the first to love you, and he won't be the last." With his knowledge of running a kingdom and her general badass-ness, I ship it.

7. Tyrion, Jon Snow, and Daenerys will become the three-headed dragon.

HBO

Obviously Daenerys is one of the heads — she's the MOTHER of dragons. Tyrion ties this whole theory together, because not only is he friendly with Jon, but he's treated the Starks well since forever (note how he married Sansa but made her as comfortable as possible). So the Reddit user who created this theory guessed that Tyrion will convince Dany to ally with Jon, and to make "Jon is the ice, Dany is the fire, and Tyrion is the bridge." So good.

8. The wall has an ice dragon either inside or underneath it, and when the horn is blown to take down the wall, the dragon will be released.

HBO

We know the wall was created using magic, but do we know what's inside? No, folks, we do not. But we do know that magic is linked to dragons, and there could be a dragon preserved inside that gigantic 8,000-year-old wall. There's also a glimpse of a horn when the Night's Watch is north of the Wall and finds the dragonglass, so could that be THE horn that changes everything in the coming seasons?

9. Jon Snow and Sansa Stark will marry.

HBO

YouTuber Alt-Shift-X points out that the houses of Sansa's suitors correspond, in order, to the houses of the champions of the Ashford tournament in the book A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (a prequel story set before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire), and since Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen — the final champion in the Ashford tournament — it's very possible that he could be a suitor of Sansa's. Weird, but, like, maybe???

10. Or when Daenerys and Jon Snow meet, they'll become lovers.

HBO / Anna Kopsky

While they're both presumed to be the reincarnation of Azor Ahai, the legend states that the warrior was forced to stab his wife with a sword in order to give the blade full power. So if the two wed, one of them will probably have to kill the other in order to fulfill their destiny. Fucked up, but that's Game of Thrones for you.

11. Samwell Tarly is actually narrating the entire story.

HBO

The actor who plays Sam actually proposed this theory himself — Sam is not only the only primary character to have been to the Citadel, but he sees Jon as a hero, which may be why the Starks are presented as such to us as viewers. This also suggests that every tale being recounted to us is biased.

12. Bran somehow figured out how to alter time and made the Mad King go crazy by talking to him through visions.

HBO

In Season 6, Bran learns that others can hear him while he is visiting the past, but doesn't understand that they can't quite fully understand what he's saying. He tries reasoning with King Aerys Targaryen (the Mad King) in a vision, but the king only hears whispers — so the king goes crazy.

13. Jaqen H'ghar is also Syrio Forel, Arya's old fencing instructor.

HBO

It would explain why they both speak in very similar, cryptic languages, and why H'ghar seems to have such a fondness for Arya — even though she constantly breaks his rules. The actor who plays H'ghar has also said, "We still don’t know who Jaqen is and why he showed up in the story in the first place. ... It wasn’t a coincidence. It was all part of a bigger plan — that's my theory." 👀

14. Oh, and Jorah is gonna be the hero of the story, y'know, the Prince That Was Promised.

HBO / ThinkStock

The requirements to be this prince, aka the reincarnation of Azor Ahai, include "awakening dragons from stone" and "being reborn amid salt and smoke," just to name a few — so we assume either Dany or Jon could be our hero. But Jorah could be a contender as well, because he has a few traits that fit the description: He was present for Daenerys's awakening of the dragons, and the fact that he repurposed his life to serve Dany could be considered a ~rebirth~. Maybe he'll become more than just Lord Friendzone soon enough.
